DP Daily Prompts: Ready, Set, Done

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

As it’s been a while since our last free write… set a time for ten minutes. Write without pause( and no edits) until you’re out of time. Then publish what you have( it’s your call whether or not to give the post a once-over).

Hazrat Bulleh Shah said “you read to become all knowing, but you never read yourself.”

Since I read this -post sent to me by my friend Robert, I spent a lot of time thinking, have I ever read myself, sometimes I do .whenever someone is nasty I wonder was I a bad person, because in my mind people just are not mean to you there must be a reason. I thought and thought but could not find anything I did. Isn’t this reading yourself or is there something deeper and I’m overlooking it.

Folks it is a swell idea to read yourself you might not do some of the things that are not good.I bought some furniture by looking at a picture, when it came I did not like it, I wanted to return it immediately but the sales lady kept ignoring me, now I think if she read herself she’d know it’s not a good idea to behave badly with your customers, you’d find no one wants to buy anything from you.

Is this making sense is this how we read ourselves?

I have since I read that post made an attempt to read me, I’m not sure of my success but I’ve definitely learned something from Hazrat Bulleh Shah!

  1. I agree it is very difficult to read ourselves. But do others have a true “read” of us? As unique beings we view others from our own eyes. You are a kind- natured person so you look at others that way. A person who is self- seeking might see someone’s good intentions as a way to use another.

    • Leslie, thank you, sometimes jealousy gets in the way of forming an opinion
      of others.I do agree it’s difficult to read ourselves, sometimes we do not admit our fault.
      It does make one think.

  2. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post. It’s a great reflective look into what “reading ourselves” may mean.

    All good wishes,
